Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore had been enjoying a solid season in Miami, ascending the all-time rushing ranks in the process. But it appears that his 2018 season is coming to an abrupt end.

According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Gore underwent tests on a sprained foot and is not expected to play in another game this season.

Gore suffered the injury in yesterday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Dolphins went on to lose the game 41-17.

If the Dolphins place Gore on injured reserve, he will end the year with 722 rushing yards, zero rushing TDs, but one receiving TD.

Gore is the first player aged 35 or more to rush for over 700 yards in a season since Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith ran for 937 yards for the Cardinals in 2004.

It remains to be seen if this injury proves the end of Gore's NFL career. But given that he's only missed a handful of games in his 14-year NFL career, it might not be the last we see of him.
